Which method of viewing music should I use?
Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:
You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.
Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.
Printing after purchase
After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

The Christmas hymn "In dulci jubilo", also known in English as "Good Christian Men, Rejoice", dates back at least to the year 1328. In that year the German mystic Heinrich Seuse, an associate of the great Meister Eckhart, claimed that he had learned the song from dancing angels. "This dance," he wrote, "was not of the kind that are danced on Earth, but it was a heavenly movement, swelling up and falling back again into the wild abyss of God's hiddenness." Be that as it may, the hymn probably was already in existence by that time. Its most distinctive feature is its mixture of Latin and German in the text; texts are this type are charmingly designated by scholars as "macaronic." This macaronic text is an unusually elegant one that makes syntactic sense in both languages; the line "alpha es et O," often cryptic to those who sing the hymn, means "Thou art the alpha and the omega." The original hymn was monophonic - it consisted only of a single melody line. It became part of German tradition, modified slightly to conform to Protestant theology, and was given multipart settings by Praetorius, Bach, and other composers.
